Shipco Transport Launches State-Of-The-Art New Website
Shipco Transport, one of the world’s leading neutral NVOCCs, has announced the launch of a new website.
Embracing the latest in web technology, the company’s website (www.shipco.com) has not only undergone a complete aesthetic overhaul but also includes many new features, enhancing the user’s experience.
Fundamental to the design of the new website was to ensure easier web navigation for the user. The site was designed to make every element accessible with a maximum of 2 ‘clicks’ of the mouse. Moreover, tedious scrolling is a thing of the past, with the display of information appearing in the one compact screen. A ‘Quick Links’ menu bring the most used elements of the website to center stage.
Other general enhancements include a revamped ‘News’ section, an upgraded interactive global Sailing Schedule and improved navigation for Shipment Tracking, among many others.
Incorporating the latest Artificial Intelligence technology, Shipco has introduced ‘Sophie’ to the website. Sophie is an online assistant – designed to answer customers’ questions relating to a whole range of subjects relevant to the company’s business.
However, the most dynamic addition to the website is the company’s new online rate mechanism – ‘Accurate’. This tool provides a truly global tariff to customers, offering more than 34,000 origin and destination combinations. But where its strength really lies is the scope of the rates that it includes: Full end-to-end pricing including pick up charges, origin charges, oceanfreight rates, destination charges and delivery charges. An in-built calculator shows the grand total for all these rate components for any given shipment, and, in order to provide an easy, ‘bottom line’ total, the system displays the total in one currency. One click then takes the customer directly from the rate tool to the booking screen - pulling forward the relevant rates from Accurate into the booking.
‘Our website is, for many of our customers, a real workhorse. Not just a place to find information, but an extension of their own operating system – providing all the necessary tools to perform their day-to-day jobs’, says Morten Bach, Shipco’s Global Chief Commercial Officer. ‘Our responsibility is to ensure that their experience on our website allows them to work as efficiently as effectively as possible. The new website does just that. And with the addition of Accurate, we’re providing customers with a powerful addition to their arsenal.’ He added.
Shipco Transport provides a comprehensive range of neutral export and import ocean and airfreight services. Shipco is a wholly owned subsidiary of Scan-Group, an international shipping and transportation company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark with more than 2,700 employees in own offices worldwide. Shipco is a founding member of the WorldWide Alliance, an association of the world’s top NVOCCs and the Air Cargo Group, a global organization of neutral Air Freight wholesalers.
